Stanford continues to work its magic on the East Coast, as Pope John XXIII (New Jersey) High School’s Dalyn Wade-Perry gave the Cardinal his commitment.

The three-star defensive tackle joins Stuart Head as the second defensive player to joins Stanford’s banner 2017 class. “D-Wade” was one of 15 Cardinal commits and recruiting targets on campus for Stanford’s first official visit weekend.
As far as how he fits into the picture in Palo Alto, Wade-Perry has the size (6-3, 341-pound frame), quickness and disruptive pass rush ability to be a star for Coach Diron Reynolds after the departure of Solomon Thomas for the NFL.

From “The Future of Stanford football’s 2017 Recruiting Class”
“Defensively, there is more of a time constrain. Currently, the defense is compromised of mostly underclassmen, and with no incoming defensive studs, Stanford only has about two years before their core starts leaving. The secondary in two years will be unbelievable as most starters this year were sophomores. Meanwhile, the front seven has a cloudy future. Solomon Thomas was the rock of the defensive front, and with him leaving, someone needs to take leadership.”
